AND NOW I AM LEFT WITH A MANGLED MESS OF A PHONE WIRE!
on the other end of things, our rabbit decides the flimsy Wii Bar wire looks like something he should chew in half...so this has left us with no choice but to purchase another one. We opt for the Wii Wireless Bar. At first... ITS GREAT! No wires, no hassle, works great and all.
BUT as the weeks woudl go by we realize we have gone through a huge pack of Kirklands best AA batteries... :(
aside from feeling enviromentally guilty, i feel the need to find a cheap/free/quick easy power source fix
and there it is... a USB port just begging to use the 5V .05a its supplied...and guess what 4xAA's = 5v!
Step 1: Materials and steps 1&2
1) Cat/Dog/Rabbit/ Spouse chewed USB cord, (as long as most of the cord is intact you should be fine.)
2) Wireless Wii Bar, destroyer of batteries...
3) Small philliips screw driver
4) Wire stripper
5) Heat shrink tube (various sizes)
6) Solder Iron/gun
8) Electrical Tape
If the animal has not severed the iphone end of the cord, cut it off and strip the wire about 8 inched to expose the 4 smaller FRAGILE wires underneath.
Clip the WHITE and GREEN wires ( these are for data transfer, the RED and BLACK are pos. neg. respectively)
